It has been 10 years to the day that former Apple CEO Steve Jobs passed. The company Jobs helped form is commemorating the impact he had by hosting a special takeover on the Apple website today.
Navigating to Apple.com, users will be met with a large ‘Celebrating Steve’ banner. Archived images of Jobs have been pulled and placed on the website in celebration of Jobs and his work within the company and the industry. The homepage banner also directs users to watch a film showcasing Jobs’s most memorable quotes.
In addition to the film, the Jobs family also provided a statement. It begins by stating “For a decade now, mourning and healing have gone together. Our gratitude has become as great as our loss.” The statement goes on and can be read in full on the homepage.
